this Monster Trucks Hair in a Can is precisely where one can find a once celebrated seat ofmperial power Situated n the alpine terrain and temperate climes of the Lang Bian plateau lies the city of Dalat the former capital of the Federation of Indochina during the Second World War Originally established n 1897 by the French as a sanitarium for sick colons Dalat evolved Danger on the Mountain into a popular holiday locale for Europeans looking to escape the sweltering heat of Southern Vietnam Its mostly cool conducive climate allowedt to become a redoubt of familiarity for Europeans the cultivation of familiar produce and a comfortable environment for sport were very much preferred Colonists enjoyed weekend visits and reveled n a taste of home and ts stature swelled with the foreign crowd In anderen Herzen in the first half of the twentieth century French administrative powern Indochina slowly accumulated n Dalat and eventually the hilly hideaway would even house the summer residences of both the government general as well as the king of Annam However as would become of the French empire throughout Southeast Asia Dalat also came to be a cauldron of contradictions and disputes between the colonizers and the colonized on several levels and s thus a symbol of the overall colonial history Triumph of the Optimists: 101 Years of Global Investment Returns in this area Thiss the argument underpinning Imperial Heights Dalat and the Making and Undoing of French Indochina by historian Eric T Jennings This well developed monograph chronicles the creation and development of the colonial hill station while simultaneously depicting power relationships within the French colonial experience through the lenses of The Silent Service: Los Angeles Class important themes such as labour race and politics Methodologically Jennings arranges Imperial Heights thematicallynto fourteen chapters which are further subdivided by convenient subheadings These along with his stylish writing makes the book accommodating for scholars of French mperialism or postcolonial studies as well as digestible enough for those with a general nterest Flesh Blood: Compendium in the history of Vietnam Jennings consideration of Dalat as representative of the French Indochinese colonial project penetrates numerous aspects of lifen the colonial hill station ncluding subjects as diverse as religion climate architecture gender and leisure Early on he states emphatically that Dalat s so enigmatic n large part because t almost encapsulates the colonial era and Seduced By Dragons (Dragon Nursery, its contested legacies and memories Throughout the work Jennings convincingly and consistently conveys this lofty notion especially within several compelling chapters Most revealings the chapter documenting the harsh treatment of minority and Vietnamese coolies by Europeans during nitial expeditions to uncover the mysterious highlands of the Lang Bian From the founding of the modern Indochinese federation to the waning days of French colonialism n the region the construction of Dalat coincided n an attempt to be something t would never entirely achieve a haven for healthy living as well as a sanctuary of European culture and sensibilities Early nto the highland experiment the French learned that tropical diseases could find their way nto the cooler mountain altitudes They would also discover that Dalat was not free from the divisions of race and class or the many colonial anxieties that existed elsewhere Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi's Life, Times, and Rise to Power in the colony Even exceptional works are not without their flaws For one the perspectives and recollections of the Vietnamese are seldom heard while the minority peoples are reduced to the role of bystander often as the silent victimn a story about brutal and racist colonial labour practices or abuse Also garnering little than mere mention on a number of occasions n the book were the hill stations of other colonial powers most often that of Simla n British India Jennings feels the need to reference these other upland stations for comparative purposes at various junctures but he does so with practically no explanation or description of them In one section subtitled Foreign Models he dedicates most of the details to foreign designs and how they differed from Dalat That being.
